As an independent, husband and wife run gallery, each and every purchase you make means the world to us and we’re not alone in feeling that way.
With Christmas coming up fast, it’s all too easy to fall back on quick and easy online shopping from huge, international companies – we get it, sometimes a speedy Amazon delivery might seem like the only option! But as the season for serious shopping gets into full swing, it’s worth remembering how your decision to buy from local shops can make all the difference in the world, both close to home and further afield.
By choosing to support small businesses in Cornwall this Christmas, you’ll not only be more likely to find your loved ones unique and thoughtful gifts but you’ll also be providing much-needed economic growth to your area, helping the planet in more ways than one and of course, putting money in the pockets of real people like Faye and I, to pay the bills, put food on the table and keep bringing beautiful artwork to St Mawes!
We’re all glued to a screen or some sort or another these days, so the joy of browsing in real life shops on a cold winter afternoon to find that perfect gift is something that so many of us miss out on during the Christmas period. This year, let’s go back to basics – let’s all get out of the house to visit and support small businesses, gingerbread latte in hand, and make a positive change in the world (whilst having fun and finding amazing presents while we’re at it!).
